Causing a BSOD in Windows 2000?
 
Is there any way to deliberately cause a bluescreen in windows 2000? I once saw a piece of C code which printed some funny characters to the screen and caused a bluescreen.

Yes. This is the malware known as internet explorer ;)

It was something like:

while (1) { printf( "\t\b\b\b\b\b"); }

This is Windows we're talking about - crashing is a built-in feature:
